Sarah Routman, the Executive Director at Hillel, has spent years exploring what she calls the 'blue thread' that connects Jewish people to one another.
recognizes that as Jews we often feel linked to one another despite each person's unique relationship to the culture and religion.
Asked what Judaism means to us, most will have a hard time coming up with a clear answer.
believes that through dialogue, shared experiences, and learning, we can understand the blue thread, and the many shades of blue that bind together to unite us all.
Sarah has a BFA in Photography and a BA in English/Creative Writing from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.
She taught high school English and drama for 10 years in Florida and Georgia and then received her Masters in Adult Education from the University of Georgia in Athens,Georgia.
inexplicable attraction to places named Athens is even more serious than it appears above as she
also announced her
engagement to Brent, (her husband of 30 years) while in Athens,Greece.
While working with teens for 10 years as the BBYO Director, Sarah developed quite a penguin collection.
has traveled extensively throughout Bulgaria and visited over 15 countries.
loves travel, reading, knitting, plants and anything in the arts.
Chocolate chip cookies are a definite favorite, and she
is happy for anyone to join her
for a cooking adventure in the Hillel
kitchen at any time!
